If you're looking for an excuse to throw a party, why not theme it? It's not only more fun for your guests, but more fun for the hosts (you!), too! Whether it be a mid-summer soirée (perhaps the first party you're hosting with your partner as a married couple), your engagement party, or a bridal shower, adding in a theme gets people excited and is a great excuse to break out some specialty drinks, fun favors, and decor galore! Plus, who doesn't love a chance to dress up?
One of our all-time favorite themes is fiesta—it's easy to do, and lends itself perfectly to happy, bright colors, batch cocktails (we're craving a watermelon margarita right now, please), and crowd-pleasing (and easy) food. Besides all that, this is the perfect time of year for a backyard fiesta with friends—the summer is just heating up (literally), and everyone's in high spirits now that it's finally stopped snowing/raining/deciding to be 80 degrees one day and 45 the next.
Need a little help finding the most fun fiesta gear out there? Etsy and BRIDES have got you covered, naturally. So grab your drink dispensers (you did register for one, right?), your margarita glasses, and some pals, and get to fiesta-ing with these 11 finds!
